    Don't own and never have owned a dryer. It can be a pain to do washing when it rains constantly but we manage with a clothes horse.

    I want to know how this happens too


    We use a mix of line, two clothes horses and the dryer - totally depending on the weather and/or my mood.
    Today I have a line full and the dryer going aswell so I can catch up.

    Up to our 3rd kid I could manage most of our clothes to be lined dry and usually used it in the evenings to finish off clothes in the winter. But since my 4th baby in February I'm always using the dryer. DD3 wants to be carried all the time and it's easier to put clothes in the dryer with one arm and also this 1 baby creates so much washing.

    If its sunny and we don't need anything in it straight away, then I hang clothes up on the line. If its rainy or we need it, it goes in the dryer.

    Our housemate uses the dryer for everything....she hasn't hung up 1 load of clothes in over 4 months...

    2) a large beetle with big
    Clipper things were in my jeans and bit me several times when i put my leg in
    3) orb spider also made its way in, in dh's sock

    I even use the line in winter if it's going to rain. Figure an extra rinse doesn't hurt.

    I use mainly my clothes horse's we don't have an outside line here hate that

    My washing goes stiff on the washing line. I really love it when it happens! It has to be really hot and sunny so it dries super fast and not windy. I especially love a stiff bath towel!
